Response to Spooning?

Never heard of that term. "He put his arm around her shoulders" is close but you don't really do this when you're lying down, but when you're standing up, or leaning back on to a carseat/sofa. I don't think there really is a well-known equivalent to udemakura in english.

BTW, I don't think "udemakura" is the most comfortable position to be in. I guess it's nice because it gives a feeling of intimacy but I'd actually prefer a real pillow any day. Maybe I'm unromantic. Anyways, the girl on the Japanese forum was talking about her bf asking for "udemakura" from her. I always thought it was the other way around...
